Code the Dream just finished interviews for our Fall 2016 class in Durham, NC! In this application round we received nearly 50 applicants, interviewed 29 individuals, and accepted 16 students for our beginner coding course.
As a new addition to the staff at Uniting NC, this was my first opportunity to be part of the interviewing team. I greatly enjoyed learning about our applicants’ passions and aspirations for the future. Some want to own their own business or graduate from a 4-year college, but each one has a passion for coding.
Our course at Code the Dream offers students the ability turn their zeal for technology into a reality by working closely with mentors and creating opportunities to continue their education through advanced classes and practical application of skills. Overall, I am very grateful for everyone who applied for our Fall 2016 class in Durham and cannot wait to see what our current students learn!
Congratulations to our Code the Dream students Linda Chen, Daniel Carbajal, Michelle Wagner, and Axel Villanueva for winning 1st Place for students at the #RTPHackathon! pic.twitter.com/YE1LgQKAMi
